Make Music Winter — the free, outdoor musical celebration with exuberant and participatory processions and performances throughout New York City — returns this year on Thursday, December 21. These revelries on the shortest day of the year bring together people of all musical abilities and styles to play, sing, march and dance their way through streets, plazas, parks, and other shared public spaces.
Some highlights for this year’s festival include: Kalimba Magic, led by renowned kalimba master Kevin Nathaniel in Madison Square Park, Tilted Axes: The Longest Night: Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars, led by composer and performer Patrick Grant, at The Hugh Plaza (601 Lexington Avenue at E 53rd St), and Roomful of Pianos: “23 Mixed Nuts”: conducted by Zane Myers who will lead an adapted version of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite at PianoPiano Rehearsal Studios, 37 W 65th Street, 4th Floor. The festival will also include over a dozen popular and updated celebrations returning from previous seasons.
